On 4th December 2017, Seven Christians were arrested on false allegation of religious conversion at Surir, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh.

Seven Christians visited a home for the prayer meeting by the request of a woman who is a new believer. However the other members of the family opposed and eventually people from that area also came to the protest along with the hindutva extremists.

Hindutva extremists called up the police and falsely alleged that Christians are carrying out religious conversion work through allurement. Police came to the spot and took Christians to the station. Hindutva extremists kept on putting pressure on the police to register First Information Report (FIR) and police registered a FIR against those seven Christians.
